DLNA streaming

I am not sure how you would go about it, but I think it would be awesome if you could add the ability to stream the videos over DLNA to Xbox 360s, PS3s, etc. It wouldn't be easy, but it would really make your product a must have item. Tversity does something similar to this with web streams, but it doesn't support Usenet.

        This would be a good stop-gap to the boxee/linux/OS X requests. What everyone wants is to hook this up to their non-windows HTPC. This would at least do that, and/or gaming console!

        I am not exactly sure of the complexities of this, but here is the way I would look into going about it. I would find a way to instead of streaming the file try to stream the video that Bintube is playing. For example maybe have a way for Bintube to play the video and the DLNA just be showing what is showing in Bintube. That way VLC would handle all of the tricky part and the DLNA would just be streaming the video VLC creates.

        The problem with DLNA is that the GUI presented by DNLA renderers is klunky, slow and very limited. We have already been toying with the idea for a while and plan to integrate DLNA functionality into the software at least to stream downloaded media files over DLNA. But don't expect to be able to browse Usenet from your TV anytime soon, at least not using the DLNA browsing functionality available today. A Boxee plugin would be more suited for this but we currently have our hands full. If anyone has experience programming for Boxee and and wants to take this on, drop us a note.
